Both were good. Buffalo was okay but nothing too special. Portabello mushroom was good but I prefer a crunchy bun (maybe toasted). This one was soft but fresh. When your from the deep south and have so much good food everyday it's hard to be...More

Recommended by Gina and she was right on. Great lunch and fabulous service. Fish tacos and spicey shrimp tacos were excellent. Going back on Friday. Will visit every time we are in Pagosa Springs.

This place was discovered by accident because Riff Raff brewing company was closed for couple of days due to minor renovation. We were not disappointed! Their fish and barbacoa tacos were awesome! I would highly recommend it because of their food and fun/quirky atmosphere!

Yes they do. While were there, some did have a dog with them. Once you are on the patio, you can exit and enter from the patio.
Do they offer Vegan options?

Yes, you can do any of the tacos as a Baja salad or the vegetarian tacos can come without the cheese too. We also offer a Portabello sandwich.
